The Reality of Religion.

In this small sura in Quran; only 8 verses God give us the history and reality of religion. In the first verse God swears by the fig and olive of the holy lands of his messages (note God when swears swear with his creation, but as his servants we swear by his names only). He then swear by Mount of Sinai and Mecca the two of most holy places. Then God explain religion very simply man was created with the best in his heart to identify God, to love the good and to feel spirituality towards the creator. Notice the innocence of young children and the look in their faces and compare that by the wickedness in the behavior and faces of many adults. When we arrogantly try to keep away from the simple call inside ourselves to live by God and be righteous we give in to be lower than animals. Thus people who follow God's path were described in the Bible and Quran as wise people. Satan is also smart in a way that can make you think the existence of a Satan is a joke itself and has no scientific merit. People who follow Satan and his path are saying by-by to wisdom. If they convince us strongly against the existence of God and the truth of the Quran they would have a strong case. If they do not think they have to or they are sure without making a convincing argument that they are right they are gambling with their souls.
95:1 By the Fig and the Olive, وَالتِّينِ وَالزَّيْتُونِ
95:2 And the Mount of Sinai, وَطُورِ سِينِينَ
95:3 And this City of security (Mecca),- وَهَذَا الْبَلَدِ الْأَمِينِ
95:4 We have indeed created man in the best of moulds,
لَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ فِي أَحْسَنِ تَقْوِيمٍ
95:5 Then do We abase him (to be) the lowest of the low,- ثُمَّ رَدَدْنَاهُ أَسْفَلَ سَافِلِينَ
95:6 Except such as believe and do righteous deeds: For they shall have a reward unfailing. إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ فَلَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ
95:7 Then what can, after this, contradict thee, as to the judgment (to come)? فَمَا
يُكَذِّبُكَ بَعْدُ بِالدِّينِ
95:8 Is not Allah the wisest of judges? أَلَيْسَ اللَّهُ بِأَحْكَمِ الْحَاكِمِينَ
